No question, these are difficult times for all of us, as well as our fellow travelers on Spaceship Earth. Clearly, none of our politicians or pundits have an answer guaranteed to fix what ails us. Perhaps it is at moments like these that we should turn to those aphorisms that have withstood the ravages of time by virtue of the truth that they contain. I share the following with you, and hope you spend a part of this coming weekend reflecting on any that strikes a chord with you. Be well.
If I want my dreams to come true, I mustn’t oversleep.
Of all the things I wear, my expression is the most important.
The best vitamin for making friends … B1.
The happiness of my life depends on the quality of my thoughts.
The heaviest thing I can carry is a grudge.
One thing I can give and still keep…is my word.
I lie the loudest when I lie to myself.
If I lack the courage to start, I have already finished.
One thing I can’t recycle is wasted time.
Ideas won’t work unless ‘I’ do.
My mind is like a parachute … it functions only when open.
The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.
The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime!
It is never too late to become what I might have been.
Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back.
Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we’ve let them fly away.
Sometimes we are so caught up in who’s right and who’s wrong that we forget what’s right and wrong.
Sometimes we just don’t realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don’t want to let that happen so I’m going to tie you to my heart so I never lose you.
